Default I have no idea what's wrong

Hi I'm new here this is my first post I think. I've had 7.3s before I just bought this one a 97 f350 a year ago replaced glowplugs did exhaust php Hydra and a cold air intake. it's been a great truck for being a farm pickup with a little blow-by and 252k on it. Well this morning I went out to start it, hasn't ran for a couple days I crank it and it starts right up but it's been idling rough when cold starting until I turn on my high idle well I turn on the high idle the truck died and hasn't started since. Any ideas? I can try taking a video it's very strange never had one of these trucks sound or act like this. I've had cps failures before and I don't think that's what this is but I don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated! - James

Update it started on a super long smokey weird start.. still no idea I'm nothing more than a half brained backyard mechanic that's just learning diesels after driving them for some time

First thing to do is to remove the chip and see if the problem persists

Have you checked your fuel filter? Possibly water in fuel or other contaminants.
